. because syria, look, there isn't iraq or nothing. >> right. >> iraq has to be put into its context. john mccain and lindsey graham were two of the cheerleaders even before bush came in, right? there was a whole group of them in the senate saying we needed to invade iraq. along the way when they realized there were no weapons of mass destruction, when they realized this was a complete quagmire, the thing they said it would never be, what they actually said was toent worry about it because we've got another rationale here. we're going to spread democracy. remember? freedom on the march? this is a language they don't understand. culture they don't understand. where having a large foreign invasion has a long and sad track record of failure. now, that's not to say it cannot be done. you know, look at the different kind of model that this administration took when it came to libya. right? we can actually help people on the ground and do so in a way that does not jeopardize american lives and can respect the culture. if you're going to push democracy it needs to come from people on the ground. s
points by the right wing against this president in very volatile times. give you an example. john baltan, the former u.n. ambassador, slammed president obama for being hostile towards israel. look at this. >> i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president that america has had since the formation of israel in 1948. >> the most hostile president since 1948 when israel was formed yet we find today, as jim just said, he and netanyahu have met ten times. the highest civilian award given to any civilian is going to be presented to him by perez, the president of israel. >> right. and this goes back to when president obama was running in 2008 and many on the right, from sarah palin on, characterized him as very close to a terrorist. it was all of this insid situation that he's really a muslim, lying about his muslim faith, because of the identity of his father, that he was from kenya, that he was a marxist, and that characterization is carried overall the way up until today. the right wing, for political expediency, constantly tries to portray this president. and by the wa
spat on a member of the congressional black caucus. congressman john lewis was greeted with racial slurs. they heckled congressman barney frank with anti-gay chants but democrats were undeterred by this tea party furor. they marched on to make history and sign health care into law. minutes after they did so, tea party hero michele bachmann vowed to tear the law down. >> going to get every republican to sign it and anybody else. if we get 218 signatures, nancy pelosi is forced to bring the repeal bill to the floor for a vote. >> so that was then. the this was today, three years later. >> that's why we're here. because we're saying, let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. let's care about people. let's repeal it now while we can. >> let's repeal it. led by tea party gop has tried 36 times to take an ax to health care, today included. but guess what, the law is here to stay and the tea party, well, these days its bark is a lot worse than its bite. it turns out the caucus hasn't met since ju
it an autopsy but yesterday ohio republican governor john casey did come out for civil unions. listen. >> if people want to have civil unions and have some way to transfer the resources, i'm for that. i just think that marriage is between a man and a woman and if you want to have a civil union, that's fine with me. >> so it's like a step, half a step, and then going backwards. so your moral position is it's all right to shack up but you can't marry. >> right. there's two things that really irritate me. one is the idea that voters of color in particular are more interested in style than in substance, that we can be won over and historically have been won over, just because of the radio show or because they visited historically black college. so i'm with e.j. on the one hand, i'm much rather have parties not ignores whole segments of the population but not ignoring doesn't mean showing up and doing a political blackface. it means actually engaging with communities about what kinds of economic, social, political efforts would in fact make a difference and i think we see the same thing. l
the debt ceiling. he's drawn comparisons to joe mccarthy. john mccain even called him a wacko bird. but cruz says things are just going great. he told the dallas morning news, "if you look at the vote on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically
heard from john boehner. >> yeah, well, i -- it's more you hear the moor you can't believe. congresswoman jan schakowsky, dana milbank, thank you both for your time this evening. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, president obama makes a big statement about his second term priorities and surprise surprise, the right wing is going nuts over it. >>> plus look out, karl rove. here comes sarah palin. she's throwing red meat to the far right, and taking aim at the architect. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions, the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state. >>> also, the devil photo that everybody's talking about. does he look familiar to you? >>> and my live interview with the raging cajun. james carville, big show tonight. stay with us. oh this is lame, investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right i don't because i rolled my account over
